This Veterans’ Day, Chesapeake Energy Corporation honored its more than 1,200 veteran employees by issuing commemorative challenge coins to each veteran.
Military service personnel also received a letter of gratitude from Chesapeake’s CEO, a pin and a hard hat sticker. Chesapeake offices, including Canton, hosted special receptions for their local employees, who are veterans.
In addition to internal veteran support, members of Chesapeake’s military relations team work to prepare all veterans for the workforce. Chesapeake partners with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring Our Heroes program, and serves on the national Veteran Employment Advisory Council. Through these initiatives, the company encourages its vendors to hire veterans. The company also supports disabled veterans by conducting regional presentations about transitioning into the workplace; is an active participant in the Yellow Ribbon reintegration program focused on National Guard members; and is a member of the White House’s Joining Forces program.
